USMJ Sees Marijuana Legalization Optimism from Washington After US Senate Appropriations Committee Adopts Veterans Medical Marijuana Amendment

DALLAS, TX / ACCESSWIRE / July 18, 2017 / North American Cannabis Holdings, Inc. (OTC PINK: USMJ) ("USMJ") today announced optimism for the entire medical marijuana sector. The message from Washington D.C. since the Trump Administration took office has been mixed, at best, and, in general, not overly supportive when it comes to federal support of state marijuana legalization. Last week, U.S. Senate Appropriations Committee adopted an amendment on Thursday with a bi-partisan vote to allow veterans to receive recommendations for medical marijuana (See Forbes Cannabis Industry Recap).
